How MitchP started their web page design journey

Overview

A site using the transitive property of math to show that one college football team is better than another, it was highlighted on ESPN SportsNation as their "site of the day." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bM9I7pz77TA

Purely for fun, this site IS intended to take itself too seriously, using common football arguments and taking them to absurd extremes. It includes a weekly transitive property college poll, showing how the most remote teams can claim dominance over the top team in the land.

It's almost football season and it's time for a site uplift.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

College football fans of all ages, conferences, and divisions.

Most folks will visit once or twice, but it's common for them to send a link to their friends at the same or rival school.

Requirements

Overview
I'm open to suggestions and ideas, but the site design should be fairly simple, allowing users to pick their teams, pick their calculation method, and see the results in a table.

How the Site Works
A user would chose two teams, "My Team" and "Your Team," and a calculation method, then hit a submit button. The site then calculates a transitive property path between the two teams. The results are shown in a table below that incorporates the teams' divisions, game scores, and a summary statement comparing the two teams.

Selecting The Teams
I'm using simple combo boxes now, but would be open to other methods.

Selecting The Calculation Method
There are currently 3 options: wins only, fastest path, or most direct. In addition to a chain of wins that most people consider, I added a way to compare teams based on common opponents. In other words, "my team lost to a common opponent by LESS than you did, therefore my team is better."

Displaying The Results
At the top of the page, the site displays the teams' helmets (based on The Helmet Project's great work) with links to other pages related to that team's comparisons.

The table below shows the teams, their division, and the game scores for every game in the path.

Additionally, it's important to have a visible and striking "flip it" function below the results, and a way for the user to email their results.
